Good food

Really enjoyed our meal here on Sunday evening. Bank holiday weekend so everywhere was busy, including this restaurant. Very delicious and good portion sizes, certainly enough to share as we did. Female staff friendly, but the older Thai waiter was ignorant and didn't speak when serving us cutlery... read more

We visited Lincoln for a couple of nights in mid May and ate here on a Tues evening. It was busy, and we hadn't booked, so we were lucky to find a table available. I would think that booking is essential later in the season as it's quite a small restaurant. We chose the shared mixed starter (tasted as good... More

This restaurant is amazing! The food, atmosphere and service all exceptional. I have not tasted such delicious food in a very long time. Worth going to Lincoln just to go to this restaurant.

Popped in on the off chance as the resturant opened. We were seated by the window and the food came promptly. Set menu for two at £21.95 was a bit expensive but it was delicious. We watched as couple and groups disappered though to the back, where were they going? - also seemed popular with the Asians which is also... More

Second time I've been to this restaurant and I really can't rate it enough. The food is just so flavoursome and aromatic. Admittedly, it is a little more pricey than other places in the area, but I don't mind paying that bit extra for a meal of this quality. I highly recommend one of the set meals they offer as...

Visiting Lincoln on the way to somewhere else but out for dinner. We fancied Thai rather than Indian for a change and trip advisor sent us to Thailand No.1. Opting for a set menu for 2 at £25 each we had a lovely meal with a couple of beers. Thai food is generally quite expensive but we agreed this was... More

Found this restaurant by accident, situated in the Bailgate area of Lincoln close to the Cathedral. I was getting hungry and was looking for an Indian Restaurant, however as we reached Bailgate there was an unmistakable waft of spices mixed with a Charcoal cooking smell, we just followed our noses until we came across the source which turned out to...

There was so much choice that I ended up going veggie for the night so that we could have one of the set menus. The starters were crispy, battered vegetable with a spicy dip, while the main courses included sweet and sour bean curd, mock duck in a black bean sauce and a vegetable noodle dish. All were delicious and... More

Appealing location in Lincolns Historic Quarter and a popular eaterie with a tempting menu. 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed a set meal served as a banquet. Varied range of starters, good choice of mains and refreshing desserts. All the food was freshly cooked, hot and with the subtlety of flavour which characterises Thai food. The green Chicken Curry was particularly... More
